The time has finally come. Drum roll please! *drumrolls*

Here is our interview with The Maine! Watch to see if we used your questions and find out exactly how many Red Bulls is too many Red Bulls. We would also appreciate it if someone could tell us what Kennedy is doing an impression of near the end…enjoy! And stay tuned, we’ll be posting our interview with This Century as well this weekend.

Check out some pictures from the show here!


We’re excited to announce that we will be interviewing The Maine & This Century while they’re in Canada for the 8123 Tour! We’ve been fans of both bands for ages and are excited to get the answers to our questions straight from them.

We want to make sure that any burning fan questions are answered as well, so send us an ask with your question or tweet us at @OfficialAmped with the hashtag #8123getsAmped!

We’re working hard to try and make Amped the best it can be, but we can’t do it without help from you lovely people! Here are some things you can do if you’d like to help get everyone amped:

  • Email if you’re interested in joining our photographer or feature writer team, we’ll be getting back to people in June (we promise!)
  • Spread the word! Tell your friends, alert your parents, wake your siblings up in the night to update them on music news, replace excited/stoked/amazed with “amped”, throw pieces of paper with our URL up in the air and let the wind take them to new places…whatever you want to do, we will love you for it!

Thanks for everything guys!
